Our September FOTM selection - an incredibly prepared Erbenochile issoumourensis trilobite, the "Big Eyes" trilobite. A very ornate design with thorax spines and incredible "tower" compound eyes! The massive eyes provided 360 degree visual coverage and allowed this trilobite to see behind itself over the thorax. Excellent shell and spine preservation. Good size. A very rare species! An Early Devonian (410 mya) trilobite from the Foum Zguid area, Atlas Mts., Morocco. Definitely one of my favorites! Authenticity guaranteed.
